5th Year Economics and Accounting students took part in The Bond Trader Challenge in conjunction with Bank of Ireland in Carrick on Shannon last week. Students took on the roles of stockbrokers and in teams had to decide when to buy and sell bonds, shares and cash based on economic indicators in order to enhance their portfolio.
Three teams were in attendance from the CBS. Out of the forty teams in the competition, a CBS teams came in fifth place. Evan Keane, Charlie Carthy, Anthony Farrell, Sean Tully were members of the winning group.
Well done to all the students involved, and many thanks to Ms Murphy for organising and accompanying students.
